The two Samsung smartphones are the first flagships since the fateful Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and will determine how the public perceives the brand after the debacle. There's the fingerprint scanner on the back, face recognition (which uses the phone's front camera) and a dedicated iris scanner up front. Both smartphones have a screen resolution of 2960×1440 and come with curved Super AMOLED screens. This time this isn't the battery that has troubled Samsung, instead is the widely-acclaimed feature of Samsung Galaxy S8, the Infinity Display. The Samsung Galaxy S8 have a type C charger with faster charging speed and even an option for wireless charging. Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus made its debut globally in the USA last month. It has a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal storage which can be expandable upto 256 GB.

While the Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a larger 3500 mAh battery. The company has launched both the Galaxy S8 as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones here for the Indian market at an event here in New Delhi.

Some users have also posted images on Instagram and local tech community sites such as Ruliweb and Ppomppu, showing the Galaxy S8's red-tinted display.
